Activity instructions and rules

Boo Your Neighbor

We are continuing a Halloween tradition in the City of Anna. Help spread some spooky cheer around the City by passing along Halloween goodies to your neighbors, anonymously by leaving them at each other’s doorsteps throughout the week leading up to Halloween. It’s a really great way to spread kindness throughout our neighborhood.

We provide a printable tag for your gift basket, a printable tag for the door, and printable instruction sheets. You'll need to provide your own gift basket or gift bags and fill it up with some Halloween items.

Print a copy of the instructions, gift basket tag and a door tag for one of your neighbors — or more if you want to get the “spooking” started faster! 

Howl-O-Ween Pet Costume Contest

Halloween is for furry friends, too. Have your pet be a contestant in our virtual Halloween pet costume contest. The contest will run during our 10 days of Halloween and there will be a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner for "Best Costume." Winners will be announced on our City Facebook page. 

Bonus – Visit Paw Park on Oct. 25 for extra points for the Anna Rivals challenge.
